[] Ann Arbor, Michigan - Humble Daisy today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of SonicPics 2.5, a major update to its popular digital storytelling app for iOS devices. SonicPics lets you create, narrate and share custom photo slide shows. The app records your voice while you flip through your images and automatically synchronizes your images to the audio recording. Publish your recordings to YouTube, share them via WiFi, save to your photo library, or email to your friends. Half price through Wednesday.

SonicPics is a tool for creating and narrating custom photo slide shows on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. SonicPics lets users select images from the iOS device's photo library or built in camera to make custom slideshows. They can then record a voiceover, narrating the images as they swipe through them. Once finished, users can export a video with their images synchronized to their narration. Recordings can then be shared in a variety of ways including posting to YouTube.

"We are really excited about the new features we are adding to SonicPics in this release!" explained Dave Chmura, CEO of Humble Daisy, Inc. "The number one requested feature has been the ability to add a background track when making a recording, which is part of this release."

SonicPics is a great fit for the classroom. "SonicPics is one of our go-to apps any time we need to hear from our students about their thinking and learning."
